EVENTS
See the Day! (22.06.2017)
June 20 and June 21, the summer solstice, marked the launch of LOW-CARB. Project Partners were hosted by Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe in the hometown of the lead partner, and besides running through the project's key outputs, enjoyed a city site visit via the city's new 'XL' tram. LOW-CARB puts low-carbon public transport (PT) organisation at its centre to reduce GHG emissions, with new combined mobility offers like bike sharing (supported by solar-powered e-bike charging stations), public transport (e.g. e-feeder service) or multimodal information services (incl. MaaS) to encourage shared mobility.
